Ex-Neck Deep Guitarist Says Police Have Cleared Him Of Soliciting Naked Photos From A Minor Allegations


Former Neck Deep guitarist Lloyd Roberts stepped down from the group this past August following allegations that he and other members of the band had exchanged sexually explicit images with a then 15-year-old girl. Roberts vowed to go to the police to clear his name of the charges and has since posted the following statement of their findings:

“In August this year I stepped down from Neck Deep after serious allegations were directed at me online.

I was horrified and sickened by these accusations and in order to clear my name, I contacted the police myself and asked them to investigate.

Now, following a thorough investigation by North Wales Police, I received confirmation yesterday that officers have found no case for me to answer and that their investigation is now closed.

It has been an immensely difficult time for both me and my family. When these claims surfaced I’d just become a dad for the first time and so the situation I found myself in with these accusations caused us all a great deal of emotional distress.

I also felt the need to step down from Neck Deep just as we were beginning to get the recognition we’d all worked so hard to achieve.

I’m now looking to put this horrendous chapter in my life behind me as I instead look forward to the future. For me, that means doing the one thing I love the most – writing and recording music.

I’ve got some exciting plans in development, so watch this space.

In the meantime I’d like to thank all of the Neck Deep fans who stuck with me and offered me support over the past few months. It meant a lot to me.

I’d also like to wish my Neck Deep comrades all the best for the future. I’m sure our paths will cross again soon.
